In Unity lies Love

The Mystics tell us that we are born for one purpose : to expand our awareness until we see everyone on the face of the earth as our very own, our kith and kin. Distant as it may sound, the joy of this all-embracing love is within the reach of us all, and we dont have to wait until the afterlife to taste it.
Every step along the way brings greater happiness, love and richness to life. More than three thousand years ago, sages who belong not just to India but to the whole world gave us one of the earliest spiritual treasures known to history, The Rig Vedas.
Here is a prayer addressed to all of us :
Meet together, talk together.
May your minds comprehend alike.
Common be your action and achievement,
Common be your thoughts and intentions,
Common be the wishes of your heart,
So there may be thorough Union among you.
Unity is strength; unity is the purpose of Love. in relationships it may begin with physical expression, but holding hands and cheek to cheek is just the surface of Love. Two hearts becoming one, two lives becoming one: that is the true meaning of Love. We just dont know the signals. We dont know the code.

But St.Francis broke the code ; SisterTeresa of Avila deciphered its signs. She said, " Amor saca Amor." Love begets Love. When we give love, we draw love to us from everyone around us, and in that love is the highest heaven a human being can know. When you give yourself to all, the Mystics say, you no longer love just one person here and another there ; you become Love itself.
This is a heavenly insight into the depths of the human heart. We begin by loving just one or two people, but the day will come when we catch the entire world in our Love. Imagine the Joy of loving all creatures, all people, the whole of nature!
As The Upanishads say, anywhere such a person goes, he or she is at home in a compassionate universe :

Those who see all creatures in themselves
And themselves in all creatures know no fear.
Those who see all creatures in themselves
And themselves in all creatures know no grief.
How can the multiplicity of life Delude the one who sees its Unity?

- Eknath Easwaran (One of the most loved Spiritual Teachers-PBUH)

Namaste :)) Thank you so much for your kind words.
In these times where we are surounded by so much terror in the name of racist discrimination and wars in the name of religion, i feel we have forgotten our True Essence and that we are in Truth a part of a Universal family :)God's own children!
